Nigerians deserve to know why Nigeria Airways failed –Buhari

1 min read

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said he was under tremendous pressure from some prominent Nigerians desirous of establishing another national carrier for Nigeria.
He, however, said his position remained that Nigerians need to know how the nation lost the former national carrier, Nigeria Airways.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari spoke while receiving the president of the International Civil Aviation Organisation, Dr Muyiwa Aliu, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I also support a national airline for both patriotic and economic reasons. We have enough trained citizens, including pilots and engineers. But Nigerians need to know how we lost the one we had,” Buhari was quoted to have said.
The President restated his administration’s determination to speed up the improvement of aviation infrastructure in the country to aid economic development.
